Classics Students Present at Annual Parilia Conference
Three Hamilton students presented at the Parilia undergraduate classics conference at Union College on April 20. Each spring, students from Hamilton, Union, and Skidmore Colleges meet to discuss their research. The conference roughly coincides with Parilia, an ancient Roman festival celebrated annually on April 21.
Senior Jaeho Lee’s paper was titled “The Battle of the Teutoburg Forest, or How to Knock the Romans Down a Peg.”
Tina Naston ’20 presented “Parnassus and Paradiso: Orpheus in Dante’s Inferno.”
A poster titled “Prometheus: Dum Fures Vivant; Dum Sapientes Vivant (Long Live the Thieves, Long Live the Wise)!” by Theo Golden ’20 was accompanied by Golden’s sculpture of Prometheus on a bicycle.
Also attending the conference were Assistant Professor of Classics Anne Feltovich; Barbara Gold, the Edward North Chair of Greek and Greek Literature and Professor of Classics; Professor of Classics and Africana Studies Shelley Haley; and Visiting Assistant Professor of Classics Jesse Weiner.
